Grand American Adventures specialises in small group holidays to the Americas, with unrivalled knowledge and experience we are committed to bringing you the finest small group adventures available. No other region on earth offers the diversity you'll discover in the Americas; spectacular natural sights, challenging and rewarding activities and encounters with some of the world's most colourful cultures and wildlife. The possibilities are endless.
We offer the widest range of small group holidays in North America, along with adventures through Central and South America. With more than 60 exciting itineraries, you can experience epic journeys travelling the USA through the national parks of the west and northwest, celebrate the musical and historical regions of the south, delve into cowboy life on a traditional ranch stay, walk in the Canadian Rockies or raft the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.
Authentic travel experiences
We believe in doing more than just visiting a place, we believe in really getting out there and having an adventure. It's not just about where you go, it's how you experience it. Our tours encompass the most exciting sights and highlights, visits to off-the-beaten-path locations which you wouldn't find if travelling alone and a whole range of exciting activities. With itineraries designed to make the most of your time, all you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the Americas for what they are; thrilling, fulfilling and simply stunning.
With a maximum group size of just 13 on most tours, it feels more like travelling with friends than being on an organised tour. Our small group adventures are made up of singles, couples and friends from all around the world. You'll meet like-minded people where everyone is guaranteed to share a passion for travel and discovery, and a small group will allow you to get further off the tourist trails for a more intimate experience.
No single supplements: You won't pay an additional supplement as a single traveller, you'll share a room or tent with a fellow traveller of the same gender. If you'd prefer your own space you can choose our Optional Solo Sleeper and pay a little extra to have a room or tent to yourself.
Our Tour Leaders are chosen for their professionalism, unbridled passion to explore and a desire in travelling the USA & Canada and sharing in the experience. They have hiked hundreds of miles of national park trails, slept under the stars and done almost every activity there is, and are keen to introduce you to the places that they call home. Our Tour Leaders will get you from A to B, organise activities and no doubt show you secret spots along the way. Ultimately they are there to make sure you get the most out of your adventure. Find out more about our Tour Leaders or read their tales from the road on our official blog site.
Tours to suit you
Most of our tours include a mix of activities, culture, wildlife and sightseeing, so you get a little bit of everything, but we also offer a range of dedicated tours for those who want to focus on a particular activity. Specialist tour types include walking, family discovery, wildlife, rail journeys and rafting. You can also choose the comfort level for you, so it's up to you whether you'd prefer to camp in the great outdoors or sleep with a roof over your head. Discover more about our different tour styles.
